Police helicopter films Humber estuary flooding

6 December 2013 Last updated at 13:10 GMT

Video footage from the Humberside Police helicopter has shown the extent of flooding along a stretch of the Humber.

The video was shot in the Yokefleet area near Goole near to the border of East Yorkshire and North Lincolnshire.

Land next to the estuary flooded as a high tide and strong winds caused a storm surge of water which overtopped flood defences.
